Sizing

At brazoo.co.uk we believe that wearing the correct size bra is of utmost importance, which is why we believe you wear a bra that is of the correct size and shape for your shape and size.

The importance of a well-fitting bra cannot be underestimated, for reasons of appearance, comfort, and safety. This is especially important if you are in possession of a large pair of breasts.

The size of your breasts is likely to change following pregnancy, weight gain or loss, and sometimes they change for no adequately explored reason. It is advisable to measure yourself, or even just experiment with different sizes, every six months, preferably a week before your period. Many department stores and lingerie shops offer a measuring service, which is often the best option, yet not everyone will want to do this and you need to make sure you find a reputable service which will recommend the correct size, even if they do not stock that size themselves. A Which? report on the matter suggests that some services are inadequate. Here is a short guide to measuring yourself (or a friend) and knowing what a well-fitting bra should look and feel like, in order to be able to buy bras with confidence.

Calculate bra size - Size Chart

Remember that there's no such thing as a definitive bra size.

  • The bra size that fits the best will vary according to the style and fabric.
  • The back of your bra should hug the narrowest part of your back and be at the same level as the front.
  • Underwires should curve snugly around your breasts it should never cut into them.
  • A test you can do is to push the wire of the bra when you have it on. If it feels soft, the wire is sitting on your breast tissue and you should try a larger cup size. If it feels hard, it is sitting on the ribcage and is therefore fitting you correctly.
  • To put on a bra, bend over and lower your breasts into the cups. Then stand up and fit yourself more comfortably inside it.
  • Make sure that you move around in your new bra. Lift your arms above your head and make sure it does not ride up and is still giving you the desired effect.
  • Always fasten a new bra on the loosest hooks. The band should still be very snug. Wear and tear and washing will relax the fit. When this happens use the tighter.
  • If you are unsure of the band fit, you should be able to run your finger along the inside of the band. When trying your bra on, try it on under a tight fitting top. Make sure that it gives you the line and shape that you are looking for.

Bra sizes usually consist of a number, indicating a band size around the woman's torso, and one or more alphabetical letters indicating the breast cup size. These sizing systems are typically used to label off-the-shelf bras and are not used for custom-made bras or bras built into other garments.
